New Moroka Swallows forward Nkosinathi Ogle might make his debut for the Birds when they take on AmaZulu in an Absa Premiership match at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.
Ogle joined the Dube Birds during the transfer season and now Swallows coach Zeca Marques tells the Siya crew that the former Golden Arrows man is ready to play his part in the Swallows team.
“Ogle has been with us for a while now and he understands the dynamics of this team, so I will take him to Durban with me. Depanding on the conditions there, I think he’ll play against AmaZulu,” said Marques.
Meanwhile, Marques told the crew that they are expecting a very tough game against AmaZulu.
“AmaZulu have always given us problems especially in Durban, so I’m expecting another tough encounter against them. We have done our preparations and the boys know what do on the day,” added Marques.
In head-to-head stats, AmaZulu and Swallows have met in 48 league matches since 1985.
The Birds have claimed 18 wins compared to 13 for Usuthu, while 17 matches have been drawn.
